Goal: Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls

Insaan Social Investments

Across its social investments, Insaan tracks gender metrics around education and entrepreneurship. 50 to 60% of all lives changed by Insaan and its partners, around education and health, are lives of women and girls.

Around secondary and higher education in India, Insaan meticulously documents the cultural challenges and prejudices still faced by young women.

Around entrepreneurship and handicraft industries, some particular skills and hard labor is often performed by men, as such female artisans range from 20% to 50% of all artisans employed. Insaan’s ventures invest in the training and skills building of female artisans, and work to establish safe working conditions for all artisans.
